This comes my way this morning. I think we all know the dangers of TV, the glass teat as Harlan Ellison so accurately and eloquently called it, all those years ago.
I post this here, not finding anything, in the moment, to dispute it. It is five years old. I think it is important to turn off the TV and open a book. The chance of manipulation then is between you and words. Read well, the breath and pace of other great minds.
Of course, we might also have to turn off our computer monitors and that would interrupt this discourse that we each give time to enjoy. Hmmm! Thoughts?

Nervous system manipulation by electromagnetic fields from monitors
Physiological effects have been observed in a human subject in response to stimulation of the skin with weak electromagnetic fields that are pulsed with certain frequencies near 1/2 Hz or 2.4 Hz, such as to excite a sensory resonance. Many computer monitors and TV tubes, when displaying pulsed images, emit pulsed electromagnetic fields of sufficient amplitudes to cause such excitation. It is therefore possible to manipulate the nervous system of a subject by pulsing images displayed on a nearby computer monitor or TV set. For the latter, the image pulsing may be imbedded in the program material, or it may be overlaid by modulating a video stream, either as an RF signal or as a video signal. The image displayed on a computer monitor may be pulsed effectively by a simple computer program. For certain monitors, pulsed electromagnetic fields capable of exciting sensory resonances in nearby subjects may be generated even as the displayed images are pulsed with subliminal intensity."
If you analyse this, one can see that this in effect gives the subliminal suggestor (mind
controller) FOUR separate vehicles to simultaneously transfer subliminal suggestion:
1. By the modulation of the magnetic field intensity (brightness).
2. Modulation of the video stream.
3. Modulation of the audio stream (two channels if in stereo mode)
4. Modulations within the program material
